The bill, which forces taxpayers to fund contraception and abortifacients, was protested strenuously by the nation’s Catholic leadership and faithful, but was pushed by President Benigno Aquino and internationally by pro-abortion groups.
The president is a firm believer in the law, and hopes to sign it this year……and with this, can abortion be far behind?
Perhaps more chilling, the bill has no provision for conscience rights and arrests and jail time are coming……..
on a second front, I learned from my contact in Costa Rica that the verdict on the Case involving IVF in Costa Rica is due to come out next Monday or Tuesday. There is hope, as the decision was not released during the recent session of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights…..but who knows
And all this on the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe…the protectress of the unborn.
Pray, unceasingly, that God might intervene and begin to light the candles that will begin the resurgence of the Culture of Life
Out Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us!
